    He she is fellas, pretty happy with how this one turned out even though I struggled at times with the kit. Sorry to go against the norm, but I don't weather my models (shock, horror!) I like the clean look :D
    Here are the six pictures -

    My four extras. BTW the order of some of the above pictures seems to have been changed when I uploaded them. I've been struggling with this new format :oops:
